Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving Gunther and Samantha Irvin:

• At WWE Clash At The Castle 2022, Gunther defeated Sheamus to retain the Intercontinental Championship. Former WWF Champion Bret Hart was in attendance to witness this match.

Bret said in an interview later that he was embarrassed to be ringside at Clash At The Castle to watch so many “leg slaps” from wrestlers. He didn’t mention the Gunther vs. Sheamus match by name, but said that he wasn’t a fan of heavy chops either, which Gunther and Sheamus used on each other a lot.

Gunther didn’t like these comments. Below is what The Ring General said about The Hitman on WWE’s The Bump:

“I think it is obvious that in-ring, he is one of the best to ever do it. Very enjoyable. He was very popular in Germany and Austria when I was growing up. He was a big superstar there. But as Ludwig said before, I don’t forget.

And what that man said at my match in Cardiff and was not mentioning nice things after that. So, he is not going to get anything nice from me. Too bad he is not in the state anymore to settle this in the ring. It would have been very interesting.”

• WWE Ring Announcer Samantha Irvin posted a selfie on Twitter, which received the following response from a fan:

“All this… you married a mid carder…”

Samantha then defended Ricochet, her fiancé, and fired back with the following tweet:

“*a future WWE Hall of Famer, future Grand Slam Champ, a GOAT High Flyer, an internationally known elite athlete, an inspiration to millions in all age groups AND a man who was with me before it all started, believed in my dream & built me up the entire way through.

fixed it! :)”
